Taron Egerton has an unbelievably good singing voice. It’s a bit of a shame we don’t get to hear more often. Luckily, the actor will put that to good use in Rocketman, a film that covers Elton John‘s formative years as a global icon and music artist.
Directed by Dexter Fletcher, the film won’t be a traditional biopic, but rather a musical fantasy that uses Elton John’s music to tell the story of his life and career. Today Paramount released an official trailer for the film, and you can check it out below.
Rumors surrounding the casting of Disney+’s The Mandalorian, the studio’s first live-action Star Wars series, have been circulating for the past few weeks. Pedro Pascal was named as the titular lone gunfighter who “travels to the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.” And now, there is confirmation.
Lucasfilm has confirmed that Pascal will be playing as that lone gunfighter. And he won’t be alone. He will be joined by the already confirmed Gina Carano (Deadpool) and Nick Nolte (Affliction). Additionally, Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), Emily Swallow (Supernatural), Carl Weathers (Predator), and Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man) will be joining the cast as well. More on the report, below.
He may have been Tyrion Lannister’s champion on Game of Thrones, but Pedro Pascal will be a different kind of champion for Star Wars fans.
A new report confirms that the actor will be the one to lead The Mandalorian, the Star Wars series that’s coming to Disney’s streaming service Disney+, which launches later next year. The full report, below.
